New Delhi: Tech giant Google has introduced a new feature for Google Maps, which will now show the air quality layer for both Android and iOS users in the US. According to Google, it will show users what to expect, air-wise: whether it’s foggy, smoke-colored, otherwise bad, or just amazing.

This information is given in the report

The report said that, with these details at their fingertips, users can make a better informed decision about whether to go out and if so, for how long. Users will see Air Quality Index (AQI) numbers along with guidance for outdoor activities, when the information was last updated and linked to learn more.

The report states that the data comes from credible government agencies in the US, including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Low cost sensor network

Maps also shows air quality information from PurpleAir, a low-cost sensor network that can give you a hyperlocal view of conditions.

To add this air quality layer to their maps, users need to tap on the button in the top right corner of their phone screen, then select Air quality under Map details.

The report states that the information about PurpleAir is also available on the Nest display and speaker. According to the report, as wildfire season draws closer, there is a layer of wildfire available in the US as well. This allows users to view details about fires operating in the area.
